A great summer of Maccabi cricket

Posted: 05-Apr-2011 by Maccabi NSW

The Maccabi Blacks U10 cricket team have just completed another fantastic season, finishing 7th in a very strong league comp. All the players made great strides forwards.

Jonny Ress and Adam Snoyman led the batting, with numerous scores of 20 not out, with Adam's brilliant running between the wickets standing out.

Jake Greenberg, the youngest in the team, was technically the best player and was passionate about every delivery in every match. Leo Rubinstein may well have been the most improved player, going from batting number 10 last year to being a competent opener by the end of this season.

All the other players had shining moments in the season, but most importantly each and every kid loved their cricket under the wonderfully inspirational coaching of Glen Greenberg (who had to endure the Abraham-esque moment of giving his son run out by 3 inches, when there was not another kid on either team that Glen would have given out in the same circumstances!).

The kids had a fantastic season, where having fun was the main focus, and all players and their parents already look forward to the next season. Well done to Mick for continuing to keep alive the dream of Maccabi one day becoming a force in Sydney grade cricket!

From a motley crew of non cricketers and cricketers, our under-11s had a really great season. We started really slowly, not able to field a team for game one and two.

From then, things improved throughout the season. The change in the skill level of individual team members was really fantastic – especially in bowling.

We had a strong pace attack (Zack Wein, Dane Goldberg and Josh Kahn). This was aided by outstanding spin (Gabriel Barkham and an vastly improved Adam Marks.

Our medium pacers also produced good performances. Fielding was an area that requires some work. Standout performer was Matt Sharp and wicket keeper Jake Wein).

In batting, we had strong performances from Zack Wein and Gabriel Barkham. The team formed a really strong bond.

We has a foreign import join (Mathew Segerman). He had never played cricket before. He was accepted in to the team and improved at every game.

We won more games than we lost and we will be back better and stronger next year.
